There are some folks who compost just about anything, including pet manure and human manure. Others believe that it is absolutely necessary to stick to a strict list of what is okay to compost and what is not. For most backyard composters, it is okay to be somewhere in the middle, and you certainly will not ruin your compost bin if you accidentally toss a leftover turkey sandwich into it.

Here are the most common items you will find on lists of what not to compost, as well as the reasons most folks believe you should not compost them — so that you can decide what is right for your compost pile...
Some folks may compost just about anything, but here are 15 things you should not compost in order to have a healthy, hassle-free compost pile...

It is always fascinating to see how landscaping trends change throughout the years.

What once was considered a must-have landscaping feature eventually falls out of fashion while other trends begin to take hold.

What is in or out in any particular year is at least partially shaped by the health of the economy, the media, technological advances and — in Southern California — by just how bad our state of drought is that year.

In recent years, landscaping trends across the country have also been influenced by new financing programs, the growing movement towards greener lifestyles and an increasing interest in growing our own food.

Here are 5 Southern California landscaping trends we expect to see in 2016...

I'd have to say that my experience with Install-It-Direct was about as good as it gets. From the very beginning with the initial consultation to the scheduling of the demo, to the installation, and to the final touches only took about 2 weeks. I have a small yard that needed some serious work to make it kid friendly as well as a place that we would like to spend our time. Dustin Schmitt and the entire crew knocked it out of the park. They turned my concept into a reality. The first day I spoke with Dustin I gave him an idea of what I was looking for. I could tell right away that he knew where I wanted to go. He was able to run with it and create a drawing that outlined everything we asked for. It was fantastic to be able to see on paper what our yard was about to become. During this process my wife and I decided to purchase a play structure for our 2 kids. Due to the limited space all dimensions had to be right on. As it turned out the structure fits perfectly, giving my children a great place to play, as well as leaving us a great area to entertain. I'd highly recommend Install-It-Direct to anyone I know (which I'm already doing).. Fantastic job guys - way to make our dream a reality within our budget!!!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Install-it Direct!! Tim was unbelievably friendly and patient with us during the upfront decision process and Jhony and his crew were incredible, they worked so hard .. They are real craftsmen and they did a superb job. Jhony was very patient with me and my husband with our thoughts as the job progressed .. The workers had a complex design that they needed to complete and they nailed it.. Our home was truly transformed ..... it is truly "STUNNING" .. as our friend's or neighbors asked us questions about the job i always said these guys are the best ... We highly recommend this company to anyone thinking about doing ANY work to their yard or drive way or walls. Thank You again Install-It-Direct.‎

Shawn designed and Herman laid out an aesthetically pleasing paver patio in my backyard. The work started on time and progressed quickly. The crew cleaned up after themselves. There were no hidden costs. We are pleased with the result.

The team at Install it Direct was AWESOME! Ron was so patient with us. The scope of the work went through several changes over several weeks while we made up our mind on exactly what we wanted. Ron just rolled with the punches and maintained his friendliness throughout. He is super knowledgeable and we felt at ease with him in charge. I would definitely recommend Install it direct for any paver needs. The job came out gorgeous!

Install-it-Direct just finished my paver porch and we are so happy with the final result! The pavers are beautiful and have made a dramatic difference in our back yard. This porch became a reality for us through Tim Thomas and his paver crew. Our initial meeting with Tim was very open and informative. I relied heavily on Tim’s experience and knowledge of pavers. I did not have a specific color or design picked out and was happy when he made suggestions and completed a design for us during our first meeting. We also had this weird concrete wall that we share with our neighbor. The wall was ugly and in bad shape and we asked for Tim’s help with that and he made another great suggestion. After our initial consultation I don’t think Tim was even out of the driveway before we decided to go with Install-it-Direct. Our project started on schedule and was completed in the estimated time we had been given! This is one thing that pleasantly surprised me since house projects (specifically mine) have never worked that way. The paver crew was great! They were friendly and courteous and helped me with some decisions on the design of the pavers and that side wall that we wanted to fix up. At the end of the project they cleaned up the work area and the yard. They did a great job! Everything looks so much better than before. I appreciate that Tim came by to check in with me the day the project started to make sure everything with was going ok. He stopped by another time and we also talked on the phone. At the end of the project he came and did a final walk through with me and answered all of my questions. This was a great experience and we couldn’t be happier with our new backyard.

Installed over 2000 SF of turf, conduit for a yard outlet, and a three-hole putting green. Selected Install-it-Direct based on Yelp reviews. Glad we did! Excellent job! Transformed our yard in less than three days. No more mowing or watering, and the synthetic turf looks better than real grass! Install-it-Direct was great to work with...

Ron, Bud and the crew were fantastic! The kids and I were not big fans of the back yard. There is still much to do with the yard, but, starting with Install-it-Direct was a great start. The kids always play outside on the patio recently installed. From the beginning, they were flexible in pricing for what I wanted. The job was challenging and the crew came in and did a job that exceeded my expectations. I love my patio and I look forward for them to do my driveway and the front of the house. Thank you Install it Direct!

We got tired of looking at our ugly/cracked driveway; so we called 3 local contractors for estimates on installing concrete pavers. These folks were not the cheapest, but were very competitively priced. They provided detailed, factual information, and made constructive suggestions without pressuring us. They performed the job on schedule, kept us informed throughout the process. Most importantly, these people know how to install pavers in a PROFESSIONAL MANNER. Their work is top-notch. I am a "do-it-your-self -er"; and am very particular. But, I recommend Install-It-Direct wholeheartedly. In fact, we're planning on having them install artificial turf in my back yard also, as soon as we can scrape up the money.
